Founded by a group of dynamic positioning officers, DP Training Solutions LLC proudly opened its doors in May 2015. Since that time, we have welcomed cadets from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, SUNY Maritime College, Massachusetts Maritime Academy, Maine Maritime Academy, Texas A&M Maritime Academy, and California Maritime to our training center. We also have trained the employees and employees-to-be of some of the leading companies in the maritime industry, including Hornbeck Offshore, Tidewater, Noble Drilling, Maersk Drilling, Rowan, SubCom, MSC, and the U.S. Coast Guard. Our students come from different backgrounds and experiences, but they share a desire to improve their knowledge and skill set as maritime professionals.
DP Training Solutions offers DP Basic (Induction) and DP Advanced (Simulator) courses, both accredited by the Nautical Institute, as well as a DP Basic course targeted for engineers, DP Awareness, DP Maintenance, and DP Refresher. We offer courses during the week and on the weekend to give our students greater scheduling flexibility. We also are willing to discuss financing plans on a case-by-case basis.
All of our instructors are accredited by the Nautical Institute and are experienced as Senior DPOs.
We invite you to sign up today for one of our training courses to advance your DP career. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
